U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said a speech by Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Saturday vowing to defy American policies in the region despite a deal with world powers over Tehran’s nuclear program was “very disturbing.”
According to an AP report, Kerry said the following:
“I don’t know how to interpret it at this point in time, except to take it at face value, that that’s his policy,” he said in the interview with Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television, parts of which the network quoted on Tuesday.
“But I do know that often comments are made publicly and things can evolve that are different. If it is the policy, it’s very disturbing, it’s very troubling,” he added.
Perhaps Kerry and his boss should have been a little more disturbed BEFORE they ramrodded this agreement down everyone’s throats.
Khamenei managed to spit in his face of Barack Obama and Kerry making these remarks after they had claimed victory in the Iran-US deal:
“Our policy toward the arrogant U.S. government won’t change at all,” Khamenei eventually said. “We have no negotiations with America about various global and regional issues. We have no negotiations on bilateral issues.”
He further praised demonstrators, who were seen over the past week shouting things like “Death to Israel” and “Death to the U.S.,” saying that the slogan will continue to be heard within Iran.

Should we be surprised that our government believes this nuclear agreement is going to stick. What a serious joke.
If we bow out now, then we’ll look like we broke the agreement. If we follow through, then it will be only a matter of time until we realize it’s not working. By that time, billions in cash and weapons will have been freed for Iran’s war efforts. Great policy makers.
Even with the chant “Death To America” our current Administration smugly thinks they are the greatest. Basically…it’s just Obama pushing another issue on to whoever sits in the White House in 2017.
